Since taking the pill at the same time everyday is crucial to its effectiveness, I simply set my alarm on my phone. Also, for women experiencing hair loss its completely normal to shed excessive amounts of hair 3 to 7 months after giving birth. I had a baby girl 8 mont ... Show Full Comment

I've been on this for six months too long. I've experienced no periods at all. I have alot of body hair growth, Depression, Horrible Headaches, Loss of breath, etc. I don't care for this at all. I can't take BC with estrogen in it because it makes me ill. I'm not sure what to use now.
